great deal. something like that will probably run closer to $5k here in NY.

btw, nice mods.. I'm waiting till next year to do some engine work.. not sure what yet.
I''m sure that 120 is a beast now.. enjoy

Nice bike!

I'm not interested in the aesthetic mods. To personal from a taste standpoint. I would like to know more about the:
120 kit
2 sets of heads
3 cams

Who's 120 kit, heads and cams did you settle on? Where's the main power band now? Got any dyno graphs? Who's tuner are you using?

Thanks for posting. Seriously nice bike.
